So many people spend thousands of dollars on heater replacement in Chester Springs Pennsylvania each and every year, and the worst part is that many of these repairs and replacements could have been avoided, or at least put off for a while with the proper efficiency during the heater’s lifespan. The main issue for most people is simply not knowing exactly how to maximize that efficiency in your home, which leads to malfunctions and full-on failures sooner, rather than later. Let’s take a look at 4 ways to add to the longevity of your system, allowing you and your family to stay warm and secure all year round!
- Changing the air filter every single month (yes, really)
Many homeowners neglect their air filters, and to be fair, it’s quite easy to do. Something so small and seemingly minuscule can easily be buried under the weight of dozens of other more “urgent” tasks, but we’re here to tell you that not changing your filter out for months at a time is one of the worst things you can do for your heating system. This is especially true if you have pets that shed a lot or any other conditions in your home where objects might accumulate on the filter.
- Leveling up your thermostat (and learning to use it properly)
We’d venture to say most Americans don’t even bother to truly learn anything beyond the essentials as far as their thermostat's functions go. What’s worse, many homeowners are using very outdated hardware for the thermostats, which is excluding them from many of the “smart” features available today. Many of these newer thermostats have settings that can end up saving you a fairly large amount of money every year just by learning them and using them effectively in your home. What’s better than that?
- Taking the time to get regular maintenance done
Many homeowners don’t like having regular maintenance done on their heating systems because they feel it is expensive to do so. What they don’t realize is that without proper maintenance, your heater is much more likely to fail on you, and even more likely to have small issues sooner than it would with service done. These small issues, while not truly detrimental to your system’s operation, make it more costly to run the heater, costing you each and every month, all the while leading to a much bigger and more costly repair or replacement.
- Learning to let go
If your system is older than 10-15 years in age, it might be time to start facing the inevitable; everything has a lifespan, and your heater is included there. Replacing a very old system will undoubtedly cost more money upfront, but in turn, it will save you money over the long run by providing much more efficient air to your family, and doing it in a smarter, more modern style with advanced thermostats and controls.
